For Charter: Princess AVK
To be the first to step on board a brand new charter yacht is a special experience. And on the new 47.25m (155') Princess AVK – only the second Sunseeker 155 ever launched – you’ll be creating lasting memories on a yacht customised specifically with charter in mind.
“This is a brand new yacht with all of the latest technology,” says Gayle Patterson of Camper & Nicholsons. “Princess AVK has evolved from the first 155, she has an experienced crew and everything you could expect to find on board the finest charter yacht on the market.”
Princess AVK will launch in January 2016 and will be available for charter for the first time in May. Currently the largest yacht to be launched by the venerable UK yard, the 155 is its most advanced yacht to date. The first Sunseeker 155 grabbed attention for her famous owner and eye-catching blue hull, and Princes AVK promises to be just as highly bespoke and wow-worthy – outdoing her predecessor in a number of ways.
Princess AVK puts a priority on living spaces, with six staterooms in total for 12 guests comprising an ample full beam master, two VIP double staterooms and three additional cabins that easily convert from twins to doubles. The flexible accommodation is a boon to guests traveling with friends or family, offering an array of options. The master and VIP cabins boast floor to ceiling windows, giving a new meaning to “room with a view.”
The brief for the Sunseeker 155 was to create an unmatched connection with the sea. This holistic design is evident with balconies unfurling from either side of the main deck saloon, and French doors in the skylounge open onto a fold-down terrace, allowing ocean breezes to drift in. The result is a soothing beach house vibe, where the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces are beautifully blurred.
The main deck aft on Princess AVK, with a relaxed seating area with coffee tables, will be an ideal space for relaxing at cocktail hour and reliving the day's adventures. A glamorous bar and dining area are tucked under the radar arch of the sun deck, and a spa tub is forward, allowing for unparalleled views while in secluded harbours and privacy when moored stern-to in the finest ports in the Mediterranean. “The furniture on the sun deck is movable, so the space can be tailored for entertaining and any event or atmosphere guests want to create,” says Patterson.
Princess AVK stands out with bold, aggressive exterior lines, while Sunseeker’s Bespoke Interiors division has created a sophisticated decor, with neutral tones casting a calming atmosphere and touches of green giving a hint to the sea.
This superyacht’s toy box is well-stocked to say the least. All the watersports fare that’s come to be expected on luxury yacht charters are included, but Princess AVK has some specialty items sure to add to the fun. Try out the flyboard, air chair, three different kinds of wakeboards, and choose between a standup Yamaha waverunner or two Seadoo jetskis and two seabob F5S – the first officer is a jetski instructor and ensures safety and thrills aplenty. After thrills on the water, the beach club, replete with sauna and shower, will be a bastion for relaxation.
Even the journey between ports of call is a treat on Princess AVK as the 155 has the most optimised hull of any Sunseeker – she reaches a top speeds of 24 knots and is extremely efficient at low speeds, saving on fuel.
While the yacht is new, the fun and dynamic crew of 11 is anything but. Her most integral crew members – from the captain to chef – have worked together for many years. Tried and tested, the crew delivers flawless service. “The chef is amazing, he’s travelled all over the world to fine tune his craft,” says Patterson.
